Opposition Takeover in Ukraine
The Ukrainian parliament continued to take decisive steps to strip ousted President Viktor Yanukovych of any remaining authority and to consolidate its leadership until the May 25 presidential elections. The parliament issued a decree naming its speaker, Oleksandr Turchynov, as the country’s interim president. Turchynov is a close ally of former Prime Minister and opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko, who was released from prison Saturday. Some of Tymoshenko’s supporters had been pushing for her to become interim prime minister, but she made it clear she isn’t interested in the position. "I am grateful for the respect this shows, but I ask not to be considered for this post," she wrote on her website, notes the Guardian.

@teamwaffles the country is at a standstill, some have even speculated that we will see a split with a new nation emerging. What do you expect?

Its way too early to tell and I just saw a story about the possibility. I'll make a new collection about it
